So what exactly is a postpartum doula? Read our blog post here.
"Postpartum doulas fill a void in the U.S. healthcare system. There's no national healthcare program for new mothers here the way there is in many other countries, despite growing evidence of the postpartum period’s importance in the health of both babies and their mothers."
Boober matches postpartum doulas to all types of families, from first-time moms to parents welcoming their second or third child to A-list celebrities requiring the utmost discretion. We began matching doulas at our sister company Birth Day Presence--the premier provider of smart, non-judgmental childbirth education, doula and lactation trainings. The doulas on the boober platform are often trained in the doula training workshop taught by world-renowned doula trainer, Debra Pascali-Bonaro and hosted at our Park Slope Studio; many of the experienced doulas are certified through DONA International or Doula Trainings International. The doulas who list themselves on the boober platform often have advanced training/licensure in complementary fields such as lactation, childbirth education, prenatal yoga, massage therapy, reiki, nutrition, and counseling.
